comment How much should I reveal of how the world functions in fiction?
Of course that the complexity of the world is the least intriguing part, but I want to (or at least try) do everything the right way. Hopefully, it won't be too confusing [:

comment How much should I reveal of how the world functions in fiction?
Exactly! One of the best things for me is figuring out the mechanics. I just love when I start reading a book and a bunch of new terms are thrown at me, that eventually get explained or are open to interpretation. I will try to explain as little as possible with maintaining the essence.

True that. I will if the financial situation would allow me. This is not done for profit, just for fun [:

But these people would be my friends and at the moment of reading they would think "But wait, this is him who wrote this, he must be thinking this and that". I'll try to find balance, but if I don't reveal enough, well, the reader would be forced to use his/her imagination. [: The point of this novel would be that I give only the absolute necessities, and then the reader fills the void with his imagination. But they must understand how the world works, at least partly [: Thanks [:

I think I will provide information about the common knowledge of the government, and only the basics (there are about six forms of rule in my world). For example, there are two supreme commanders, one that leads armies in to attack and one that defends the capital. The chain of command would be revealed through the eyes of soldiers, allies, surviving enemies and other entities that are in some sort of link with the army . And so on for every form of rule, every force of nature, every aspect of magic etc. [: Thanks for your answer :D
